Blur his body? Ha. Probably just any commentary about him is muted. See Elimination Chamber Anthology DVD.

WCW Fall Brawl • September 14, 1997 are they gonna blur out chris benoit’s name and black out his image everytime they show him? I think they should release a best of chris benoit bluray set because he has a ton of great matches.

I really cannot see why people are complaining, you wanted War Games and that’s exactly what you are getting – every taped war games match. The blu-ray extras are just that – extras.

Personally I think it’s cool to have the Smoky Mountain match as how often do we get any of that? And one of the ECW matches (December to Dismember) has NEVER been released or shown anywhere (not even by ECW) so how can you complain at that?

Don’t really see much complaining going on (maybe a little, though I wouldn’t think it was necessarily enough to warrant a post strictly dedicated to the limited complaining). In fact, the terms “perfect,” “first day buy” and “best release of 2013” were thrown around. How often do you get that type of praise?

Yeah I don’t get it either. The only thing I could think of to make it better (and this is sight unseen) is if there is a small recap before each war games as to way everyone is fight. But that’s petty and minor.

Does this mean we’ll get some WCW content on ECW releases? If so, awesome! Finally a reason to buy an ECW release.

The 98 War Games was so bad! But then again, anything with The Warrior involved is gonna be a train wreck and this match was one of the worst. What’s up with the Blu-ray exclusives? ECW matches, not that I am complaining, I love it and those to me are the selling point for this release. Wonder why they put them on this when they have a Volume 2 of ECW Unreleased coming out shortly? Or am I reading this thread wrong?

Honestly, the inclusion of the SMW and ECW matches spoils an otherwise perfect release. I’ll still get it, but I would have much rather seen other moments and matches that led up to the various legitimate War Games matches included in the set.

This one, unlike all of the others released so far this year, is a first day buy.

If you just buy the DVD, and it will be a ‘perfect’ release then won’t it?

I always buy the best quality possible. As a result, if there’s a Blu-Ray I always buy the Blu-Ray. I’ll only buy a DVD if it doesn’t get released on Blu-Ray. Frankly, even though the SMW and ECW matches don’t belong and should have been replaced with matches and moments leading up to War Games matches, I’d rather have those SMW and ECW matches than nothing at all. So, their inclusion is better than unused space/minutes.

The ECW and SMW matches are “War Games Rules”. You are saying you would rather have non-War Games matches on the War Games DVD? That makes more sense?

If they’re good lead-in matches to the legitimate WCW War Games matches, then yes!

I could make a DVD set out of War Games 92 pre and post event alone. Windham v. Austin from Sat night, Arn v.s Barry 2 of 3, Rude vs. Boat, Arn/Larry or Arn/Eaton vs. Dustin/Barry, the Nikita run in during Lex/Sting vs. Rick/Scott, etc etc etc

The Nikita run in for the Luger/Sting vs. Steiners match happened a year before though. So that match would make no sense at all to be included for a build up to War Games 92.

If you are a true wrestling fan,then you will love the first war games match.the feud between the fourhorseman andthe road warriors and superpowers was great.When wrestling was great.

I’m really working hard to comprehend why people are pining for that Uncensored debacle/travesty/joke like it is Flair/Windham from Crockett Cup ’87 or the Slaughter/Sheik Bootcamp Match. I suppose it really does take different strokes.

Personally, I’d rather see Flair/Windham from Battle of the Belts or even Beach Blast 1993 than any of the other matches (including the ones about to be released) listed in this entire thread.

I’m gonna pass on this one. There’s some good matches but i spot a lot of crap ones too.

Dear God Yes!! Could’ve done without’98 but small price to pay. War Games ’92= my collection complete.

True, 1998 did suck and, while a War Games match in name, the rules were different enough that it wasn’t a true War Games. By including that match, it should have opened the door for the Uncensored 1996 main event to be included as a Blu-ray extra.

Whatever.

This is still the best release of 2013 and there’s nothing even close.

The first and the 1997 War Games are the selling points for me.

I’m glad the ECW and SMW matches are considered Blu-ray extras as that’s the only reasonable way to include them in such a release.

I don’t understand why they didn’t also include the Uncensored 1996 main event as a Blu-ray extra. Nevertheless, this is EASILY THE BEST RELEASE of 2013.

The Uncensored ’96 match wasn’t held under War Games rules where a guy from each team comes in every few minutes. It was Hogan & Savage against like 8 or 9 guys at once.

Wrong. Guys came into the match in waves, comparable to a War Games. So, on the top level, Flair and Anderson started the match, while their teammates, on lower levels, waited their turn to enter the match up.

Not comparable to War Games at all. It was more comparable to a Gauntlet Match if anything. In fact, the rules of the match were that Hogan and Savage had to run through each level and escape the cage to win. Of course, this being WCW, both Hogan and Savage left the cage early and then went back in and continued the match and then left the cage a second time only for Savage to come back in and inexplicably pin Flair, which wasn’t part of the rules at all. One of the worst PPV main events in history.
